Read an excerpt
Almost everyone can identify with some physical manifestations of PSP. Muscle rigidity and fatigue. It stops there. Those with PSP also experience falls, balance-gait… movement disorders. Also, on the menu are swallowing issues, lack of eye movement, speech difficulty, depression, anxiety, apathy, and even double incontinence.
However, dementia associated with PSP (FTD- Frontotemporal) or any dementia is a different beast altogether. Who hasn’t experienced forgetfulness? Have you put things in the wrong place? How many of you have experienced the fear, having found yourself in unfamiliar surroundings and not knowing how you got there? How about frustration causing angst trying to do simple mathematics in your head? Following instructions or even remembering conversations? Then there’s word retrieval and the slow thought process, or even losing time – I call this a braincation. These are a sampling of the challenges associated with a dementia.
